Mushtaq Ahmed, the former spin wizard from Pakistan, has left his job as the spin-bowling coach of England and has taken up the exact same role with Pakistan.

After Peter Moore’s appointment as the head coach of the England cricket team earlier this month, followed up by Graham Gooch and Mushtaq Ahmed’s departures have left the England cricket team in shackles.

Both Gooch and Ahmed had been a part of England’s coaching team for a good period of time now and with both of them leaving their jobs, ECB has the task of finding not one but two coaches.

Peter Such, who played 11 test matches for England, grabbing 37 wickets, is one of the probables to replace Ahmed as the new spin-bowling coach of England.

The PCB confirmed Ahmed’s appointment as the spin-bowling coach of Pakistan but there’s still no official statement from the ECB.

This will be the first time that Ahmed will be coaching the Pakistan cricket team.

Earlier this month Waqar Younis, under whose captaincy Ahmed played, was appointed as the head coach of the team.

Mushtaq Ahmed played 52 test matches and 144 ODIs for his country and grabbed 185 and 161 wickets the two formats respectively.
